Witches Sadness (Prototype 81, Ruby and 5XA) Halloween Spooktacular

Description
Prototype 81 and Five Extra Arms finally collaborate. Our song developed pretty smoothly from start to finish. Jay submitted the original idea, and I was onboard from the start. We really clicked from the start. Then Friday my 6 year old comes to my office where I record and wants to play with the mic, so I open GB and this song opened... I told Ruby what the song was about, and we played with the chipmunk voices, and diva voices, etc.... in the end, she and her brother came up with this story, (Hondo suggested the "evil" lyric). I deleted the screaming, the baby talk, the knocking about of the mic, but this was Ruby's timing and placement (I copy pasted in the second section). Jay and I really like what she did but didn't have time to develop it since Saturday AM when I sent the "new version" to him.

We decided to work on this (We have more goodness in store) but we're posting this preview to be part of the Spooktacular. We were originally going to post an instrumental.

Enjoy!

Lyrics
Once upon a time
there was a good witch
that loved the children
and the children loved her
she was beautiful
and evil....

Good/evil
I'm glad you didn't just post the instrumental, because what Ruby adds is great! Very fitting, as I sit here handing out candy to kids.

and your little dawg, too.
This is a fun little spookatrip. Perfect for Halloween. I've got both my little urchins sitting with me. They're doing some very weird dance moves. I like the carnival sounding synth in the middle. Ruby sounds so much older! Which makes sense - last I heard her speak was on that 2007 Christmas video.

I love the mix of light skipping melody
over the dark ominous backing - very cool contrast. Great drum and synth work - and of then there's Ruby - perfect.
Excellent collab.

Reverb, feedback, or something.
Great vocal timing and kids energy on the forward pulse.

There's a cool Japanese video game vibe that would make me go ninja on the D-Pad, which is kick-ass cool in it's own right. But this piece has enough melodic/harmonic merit to get majestic with the right synth tones.

Witches Sadness
A good witch that loved the children and was evil. Now there's a complicated main character deserving of further development. Excellent backing track. Good job Ruby. I love when children write.

This is nice
Kids have a way of getting to the heart of the matter without all the P/C stuff.
Ruby, you did great on this and so did your dad and Jay. Great lyrics and very well said, and the back tracks are very spooky.

A winner in my book.

Leave it to the children,
to save you from my wrath. Finally someone remembered us on this glorious holiday.

Ruby is right, we Witches do love the children, and we are evil when we need to be. And because Ruby was so kind and thoughtful, I have a special Spell for you Bob, and Jay, actually would that be Jay and Silent Bob, well maybe not, but I digress.

My special Spell for all of you is for a life of happiness and success. And for Ruby especially, one of Love and Peace.

See boys and girls, Little Queenie doesn't have to be evil all the time, but it is more when when I am. Ha ha ha hahahahahahah

Thank you Ruby,

Little Queenie

Protobob or is it Bobotype?
Oh yeah this is freaky in a great way.
The narrative from your kid makes the song.

Loved every second guys!

she was beautiful...and evil
love it. the thing that struck me right away is how easy it is to manipulate reality with music. take away the spooky sound bed and the vocal effects and it's just two kids playing around, add them back in and it's creepy and imbued with all kinds of scary portent. shows how important the soundtrack is to the movie, and commercials, and political ads, etc. you and prototype, master manipulators.

from the mouths of babes...
nice nice nice evil nice... sort of a darkwave downer sound, and your choice of just the sparse story without extra stuff is great, letting the mind wander into its own dark corners in between.

A special thanks...
to Hondo. Without his lyric, the song would not be complete because even the nicest witches need to be at least a little evil.

The instrumental and Ruby's contribution are superb!
